The way to build up Dallas is to pat
ronize Dallas people.
Tbo appointment of Dr. Robert Lee
Stelner to the position of Superintend
ent of the Oregon Insane Asylum will
be pleasing to his many friends in the
state, and especially to the people of
Dallas, where ho practically legan hi
professional career. Dr. Steiner is
skilled physician and surgeon, and a
man of excellent bubin ess ability. He
is kind-hearted and sympathetic, and
will look carefully to the comfort and
welfare of tho unfortunate people
placed in his care. He is now visit
ing tho asylums of the Eastern states
for the purpose of bettor fitting him
self for tho dutlos of his new position
Teamster Nearly Loses His Lite
Attempt to Stop Frightened
"I doubt whether it would now be
accepted by so largo a majority; pos
Biblv it would not be adopted at all.'
In these words EditorScott, of tho Ore-
gonlan, paid his respects to the popu
listic Initiative and Referendum at the
Portland Commercial Club dinner,
We believe that an overwhelming ma
jority of tho voters of Oregon will
agree with Mr. Scott. It is only to bo
regretted that the great city dailies di
not throw tho weight of their influence
against the adoption of this visionary
amendment in the first place, instead
of leaving two or threo country news
papers to fight a hopeless battle. Rut
thero are signs of an awakening.
Bro. Flsko says that in the appoint
mcnt of T. A. Odom as night watch
man, tho Itomlzer has won its long
light for better protection. Probably
true, although it was tho Oukkhvek
man that got out and rustled Mr.
Odom 's subscription paper up to the
required mark. Well, Flake, thero h
glory enough for all, and tho Item
Izer'a editorials may have been respon
sible fortliocounoil'sappointment, the
OnsKitvEit man's rustling, and all the
rest of It.
Colonel Hofer says editorially in
his Capital Journal that there is no
other advertising so good as Dews
paper advertising, and that tho fences
on tho roadsides are a directory of
business failures and firms that have
gonoout. Thoie Is so much truth in
this that ono is almost attempted to
forglvo tho Colonel for priiitiug it In
blaek-faoo letters.

In a runaway, Wednesday morning,
J. L. Blodgett was so severely injured
that it was found necessary to ampu
tate his left arm.
Mr. Blodgett had hauled a load of
soil for useio levellingaroundthe new
drinking fountain on tho Riley corner,
and after dumping It, stepped In be
tween the horses and the front wheels,
to replace the boards in the wagon.
The team, which was young and
high spirited, becamo frightened at a
passing auto and bolted before he
could step clear of the wagon or make
any effort to stop them. He was caught
in the harness, thrown against the
wagon tongue, and dragged help
lessly along for nearly a block. Harry
Hibbard seized the horses' heads aDd
attempted to stop them, but was forced
to springclear to avoid being trampled
and crushed against a woodpile in
front of James Lawton's residence.
The next instant the horses crashed in
to a telephone pole and were brought
to a standstill,
When Blodgett was lifted from
among the wreckage of the wagon,
his head was terribly cut and bruised,
and the elbow joint in his left arm
was literally crushed to a pulp, ne
was carried to Dr. Bollman's office,
and tho ruined limb amputated.
In addition to a deep cut on the
back of his head, his right thigh, his
breast and abdomen were badly
bruised by tho hoofs of the runaway
horses. He camo from under the
influenco of the chloroform nicely,
however, and unless unforeseen com
plications arise it is belioved that he
stands a fair chance of recovery.
DALLAS, Or., October 22-(To the
Editor.) You have noticed theofferof
our Senator of $1,000 for the best
reason why President Roosevelt should
accept a second elective term. This
offer was evidently inado to get an
expression from tho largest possible
number of people, and it is expected
that all who favor the second elective
term of our honorablo and useful
President will write out their reasons
for so desiring a continuance of the
Roosevelt policies and forward them
to tho National Magazine, Boston,
Massachusetts. As a citizen of this
great state, I trust wo may take the
load in this agitation. Let everyone
take up his pen and write. Do it now.
